Same way it went for the Duane Brown pick.
Then said, "Harris is probably going to go in this area, we need to position our selves 'here' to have a shot.." or "If this team doesn't take Harris, we're making this move."
Same thing the year before. They had a list of Running backs. Maybe as many as 6 that they thought could fit our system. The idea may have been, "if these 6 guys are still available, we'll wait until the third round to pick a running back; if 5 are available in the third, we'll wait until the 4th; if 4 are availavle in the 4th, we'll wait until the 5th & so on & so forth.... " they may have got to the final pick & still had 3 of their guys available so they decided not to use a pick on a running back at all.
Hopefully the Texans war room works likeit did last yr.
Wade and Gary tell Rick that they got this and he can go to the bathroom for a few hrs.
